first i can see this easily going in to the realm of religion so before you post about religion read the rules of the forum for religion. (https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=93343) i want to read views from other people on morality. my view: 1) basic human emotion is to improve the life of there self. 2) we group together to improve our own life. 3) from there the group operates as one though the individuals are for there own improvements the improvement of the group helps improve themselves. 4) if a member of the group tries to get ahead by putting the well being of the group at risk then the group punishes the individual. 5) the idea of being punished keeps us inline. note: this only works within groups group vs. group: 1) two groups have a smiler interest that can't be shared (or wont). 2a) groups fight to obtain control of the interest. 3a) confect remains unless second group is removed or converted. -----or----- 2b) groups merge and share resources. note: this is vary basic looking at human history and how i precise people is how i came to this conclusion. but i love to be wrong and i want to read other view and reply to comments about mine.
